Toyota GT86 Heritage Replica Fleet

Toyota GB have been hard at work creating six brilliant modified GT86s, turning them into rolling replicas of Toyota Motorsport heroes of the past.

It’s been a labour of love for the guys at TGB, who wanted to pay homage to the legendary Toyota sports cars of the past from which the GT86 sports car drew so much inspiration from, particularly in the way the vehicle looks, drives and feels when you’re behind the wheel.

The heritage cars that have been used as the inspiration for the project include the Yatabe Speed Trial Toyota 2000GT, Shelby Toyota 2000GT, Ove Anderssons Toyota Celica 1600GT, the IMSA GTU Toyota Celica, Castrol Toyota Celica GT-Four and the Esson Ultron Tiger Toyota Supra.[spacer space=”20px”]

[spacer space=”20px”]The six-strong fleet have been through a meticulous process of upgrades including vinyl graphics (or a full vehicle wrap in the case of the tiger GT86) and retro styling details and also feature aftermarket performance upgrades. These upgrades include a Milltek Sport stainless steel performance exhaust system for an even racier soundtrack and V-Maxx progressive rate lowering springs (the original dampers remain) which give the car a 40mm lower ride height for an improved “stance” on the road and track.

The modifications didn’t stop there however, each GT86 was treated to a new set of aftermarket alloys too. These alloy wheels were specially sourced by UK importer Rare Rims and the challenge was to find alloy wheels that not only matched the ones in the archive photographs of the racing cars, they also had to match the size, offset and stud pattern of the GT86 so that they would fit! The alloys they found were made by Rota Wheels, all 17” or 18” in diameter and all are simply stunning.

This strictly one-off collection will be showcased at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, where they will be available for public test drives.
